Located along the esplanade leading up to the recently opened High Bridge, Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair is a group exhibition of nine artists’ public artworks. In a frantic world, finding a chair can be almost impossible and settling comfortably into one can be an enormous satisfaction. Sitting in the wrong seat can cause anxiety and an even pain. Exhibiting artists Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Robert Dell, Gregoire Ferland, Esther Grillo, Christina Jorge, Siena Gillann Porta, Herb Rosenberg and Chuck von Schmidt respond imaginatively to the notion of sitting or using a chair. Oh Sit! is framed as an imperative, a command—a way of asking the viewer to look and really consider the concept “chair” both objectively and subjectively.

Join us for a lecture titled "Future of Manned Space Flight; Why it's Time to Go Back," by the Amateur Astronomers Association, followed by a rooftop screeing of Star Trek II.

In 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human ever to go into space. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin shattered limits again in 1969, when they became the first people to set foot on a second celestial body. In 2000, the first crew was sent up to the International Space Station. Although we continue to put humans in space, we have not taken a major innovative step forward in this area in over a decade. It's time for this to change. We're in need of the technological and scientific innovations that manned spaceflight provides, as well as a dose of inspiration - to get children believing that they can be the next Neil Armstrong...or Captain Kirk.

Dark Nights, Bright Lights is a new Arts, Culture & Fun series in partnership with the Amateur Astronomers Association. The AAA holds observing and educational events throughout the 5 boroughs, and beyond. Visit aaa.org to find out more and check out their calendar of upcoming events!

Once a free and open society, Vienna is bitterly divided between high morals and the greed of commerce. Disguised as a monk, the duke wanders the land, prying into the daily lives of his subjects. When his deputy sentences Claudio to death, the virtue and purity of his sister, Isabella, is the price she must pay to save her brother’s life. Measure for Measure is directed by artistic director Stephen Burdman.

Watch classics and soon-to-be classics handpicked by NYC Parks' Arts, Culture & Fun series. All films are screened outside NYC's great outdoors and they're free!

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is considered by many fans to be the best of the Star Trek movies. With assistance from the USS Enterprise crew, Admiral Kirk crosses the path of his old enemy Khan, who was the chief antagonist in the 1966 Trek TV episode "Space Seed". Leading a crew of near-savage space prisoners, Khan insinuates himself into the Genesis Project, which is designed to introduce living organisms on long-dead planets. Intending to harness this program for his own purposes, Khan engages in battle with the Enterprise crew.

Located along the esplanade leading up to the recently opened High Bridge, Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair is a group exhibition of nine artists’ public artworks. In a frantic world, finding a chair can be almost impossible and settling comfortably into one can be an enormous satisfaction. Sitting in the wrong seat can cause anxiety and an even pain. Exhibiting artists Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Robert Dell, Gregoire Ferland, Esther Grillo, Christina Jorge, Siena Gillann Porta, Herb Rosenberg and Chuck von Schmidt respond imaginatively to the notion of sitting or using a chair. Oh Sit! is framed as an imperative, a command—a way of asking the viewer to look and really consider the concept “chair” both objectively and subjectively.
